Question: Blocked Site Error,Can contents be restored?
January 26, 2012 05:17:25am
"Hello! A few years ago i used a robots.txt file to block the archiver from crawling my website. And i believed that this would also delete the contents that were already in the archive. But when ich recently removed my robots.txt my website got indexed again and ALL of the old contents were available in the archive again. I contacted the archive via email and they excluded my domain. Now i get a "Blocked Site Error".
Now my question: Is there any possible way that my contents can show up in the archive ever again? It is HIGHLY important to me that this is not possible.
Does "Blocked" mean the contents are still stored in the archive but you cant access them?
I.e. if i gave up the domain and someone else allows it to be indexed again. I tried and asked the archive via e-mail but i did not get ANY response, which is very dissapointing.
Please, Please, somebody give me an answer!"
and not one of the many people who work for this website, yourself included, had the respect or common decency to even address it.
Jeff Kaplan answered the question "how-do-i-embed", actually made a follow-up to an additional question in the same forum but completely ignored the earlier posted question asked by notimportant2.
You jump into the conversation and add this:
"Perhaps if you talked about your pain, you would get better.
What do you think the Internet Archive took from you? Is there something you can show us so we could understand your feelings?
And what could the Archive do to make amends?
Now, take a deep breath, let it out. Again. Feel better?"
Someone should be addressing notimportant2, your 'playful banter' is useless.
Mr Cranky I have a strong feeling you are as up to date with the global changes that will directly impact this website.I personally think with all the Copyright Modernization in progress that now would have to be the most inopportune time to brush off questions avoid responsibilities and delay the inevitable.
